It looks a bit like there was no direct line between Washington (or Lima where the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting took place) and Doha. Amran Abocar writes for Reuters:
"International Monetary Fund Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn and World Bank President Robert Zoellick cited scheduling conflicts."
At the same time, "according to World Bank estimates, 40 million people will be dragged into poverty in 2009 as a result of the global financial crisis and related economic meltdown."
By the way, Doha what?
